Extraordinary Collage Art from Paper Strips

Originally mainly a painter, artist Patrick Bremer has recently started making quite extraordinary collage work as well. He creates his pieces with layers of collaged magazines and books on paper. Based in the UK, the artist chooses strips and chunks of paper that fit the image both visually but also sometimes textually, it isn't as haphazard as it appears! He said, "Some pieces are chosen specifically because the image or text relates to the sitter, but others are left to chance. The pictures work on the first level as a portrait, but then you can move closer to explore and read the information within it."

The work conveys both a sense of violence in the thick chunks combined with a meticulousness that results in the quite detailed human portraits or scenes. When describing his work, the artist said, "I wanted my work to be a combination of both – loose and carefree mark-making that leads to happy accidents in the work, but also carefully planned out."
